Wallies Water World without H2O

Hi... We have a 2012 Salem 27RKSS.

Today I filled the storage water tank started the pump and got air. And a few drips of water.
but nothing else.
Then I went outside and noticed that the water was running out of one of my 2 water tank drain lines.
I get water from the drain line but nothing from the shower or the sinks

The city water stuff works perfect but the res tank - forget it.

My manual shows 2 line fixtures at the end. My trailer has one that is secured and nothing on the second line where the water is running out of.

Does anyone have a salem that they can post a similar picture for me to determine one or 2 end valve assemblies are standard? As well my manual states that I need to fill the stowage tank, open all faucets (assuming shower as well) then turn the pump on. keep the taps on until the water starts to flow and then turn them off as H2O escapes as normal... When the last tap is shut off the pump will shut off.

Providing that I can cap the leak at the end of the drain line I will refill the tank and start that process again.

In the mean time it would be nice to know if anyone else has had similar problems with the stowage tank not getting water to the taps.
I recount some saying they were ready to just and bust. I'm almost there

Don't have a res tank in my camper, but that does look like it should have a valve or cap on it.

Looks like the low water drain points and yes both should have a cap on them.
